How Machinery of Government (MOG) changes are displayed on the dashboard

The Corruption Allegations Data Dashboard is prepared to reflect the establishment and abolition of departments, and capture any departmental name changes since July 2015. This means that, for the same work unit, older allegations may be captured under now-abolished departments, and newer allegations may be captured under recently established departments. For example, prior to 21 December 2017, Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) was part of the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG). Following the 2017 MOG changes, QCS became a separate department. In terms of reporting, this means allegations relating to QCS from before 21 December 2017 are captured in data for DJAG, and allegations relating to QCS from 21 December 2017 onwards are captured in data for QCS.

MOG changes are first implemented in the dashboard in the reporting period after they occur (e.g. May 2019 MOG changes will not be visible until the dashboard is updated to include allegations from July 2019 onwards).

Below is an overview of MOG changes since July 2015.

2019 - Separate Department of Youth Justice

A new, stand-alone, Department of Youth Justice was announced in May 2019, whereas Youth Justice was previously part of the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women or the Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG).
